  • Things are starting to get a bit more interesting now with the start of the new season creeping ever near, and the signing of another new player or two, or was it one.

    Definitely in was Sam, son of Shilts.
    Definitely out was Steve Jones, he went back to Cheltenham.
    Did he ever get to Aggborough?

    And the one who couldn't make his mind up, Neil Mackenzie.

    There may still be more signings to come with a new keeper on Jans wish list and another midfielder, probably Readings Adam Lockwood.

    The Reading manager, Alan Pardew, said that Lockwood is surplus to requirements and is free to go.
    Both Harriers and Southend are said to be interested in the 19yr old who spent some time at Forest Green on loan last season.

    Interest is waning in Mark Blake and Frank Talia.
    Blake is setting his sights higher than the 3rd Division after receiving offers from two un-named 2nd Division clubs.
    The reason for the loss of interest in Talia, who has been released from Sheffield Utd, is not known.

    News of a fixture change comes from Macclesfield who have asked to move their home game against the Reds from Saturday 6th October to the following day, Sunday 7th with a 2.00pm kick off.

    The re-arrangement is to avoid a clash with England's World Cup qualifier against Greece that weekend.

    And finally not before time we have decided to promote the reserves from playing the likes of Bromsgrove and Worcester City to the likes of Wigan Athletic and Notts County's reserve sides.

    Gary Barnett thinks Harriers' reserves will be better for joining the Avon Insurance Second Division.

    "We felt the club would benefit and progress by playing professional sides every week.
    It is important to have a reserve side that plays in a strong league as this helps improve the sharpness of our squad players and those coming back from injury.

    Some of our younger players like Lee Ayres and Peter Faulds will also progress far quicker playing against fitter and stronger sides."

    All the reserves home games will be played at Aggborough.
